As of May 20, 2019, the Texas Service Center has begun processing certain H-1B cap-exempt petitions requesting a change in employer or previously approved employment, concurrent employment, change of status to H-1B, and others.

USCIS said this does not include H-1B petitions for cap-exempt entities.

The Texas Service Center will share this workload with the California Service Center, Vermont Service Center, and Nebraska Service Center. Starting July 19, 2019, USCIS may reject any of these petitions that are filed at the wrong service center.
